Report a Cruelty Case

RSPCA Inspectors investigate complaints about all kinds of animals in all kinds of situations, right across the State. The most common complaints are failure to provide the animals with appropriate food, water, shelter or veterinary treatment, or concerns relating to their living conditions.

To investigate a complaint in Tasmania, RSPCA Inspectors require a reasonable belief to suspect that an animal cruelty offence has been committed. It is therefore essential that you provide contact details so they can confirm the facts and gather more information.

Your contact details remain strictly confidential and are protected in accordance with Tasmanian privacy legislation.

Please note that you must be 18 years or older to lodge a cruelty complaint.

For more information please visit the Inspectorate page.
